(VNF) - The Prime Minister has passed the Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex master scheme, with a total natural land area of 12,252 ha in Hoa Lu, Gia Vien, Nho Quan districts, Ninh Binh city and Tam Diep town.
Accordingly, the heritage area of the complex covers 6,226 ha, covering parts of 12 communes, including Truong Yen, Ninh Xuan, Ninh Van, Ninh Thang, Ninh Hai, Ninh Hoa (Hoa Lu district); Gia Sinh (Gia Vien district); Son Lai, Son Ha (Nho Quan district); Yen Son (Tam Diep town); and Ninh Nhat, Ninh Tien (Ninh Binh city).
The Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex in Ninh Binh province in northern Vietnam, an “outdoor geological museum”, has been inscribed in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)’s World Heritage List, the country’s first site to be acknowledged as a mixed natural and cultural property. It is also home to local citizens.
The master scheme clearly points out space development dimensions: the Trang An eco-tourism site, buffer zone (protective zone), residential area, and service-tourism areas.
Construction activities are allowed in the buffer zone, however, they should be strictly controlled.
The covering space of the buffer zone is pided into four units: Bai Dinh unit is a spiritual tourism site and new university area (East), Truong Yen-Ninh Hoa unit in the North is a rural residential area and for tourism services; Ninh Nhat-Ninh Tien unit in the West is a residential area and for tourism services; while in the South, Ninh Thang-Ninh Hai unit is a residential area and for tourism services./.
